I live in Queensland, it doesn't get too cold were I am.
Were off to NZ in a few weeks, just wondering how do you keep bub warm?
Do you just use a blanket or do you use sleeping back type thing?

Lots of layers on bubs so you can adjust if needed, socks, blanket tucked over the top and a beanie if it's really cold

Baby in singlet, onesie, socks, mittens and beanie. Then swaddled in a thin blanket with another warmer blanket over. Use the rain cover to block wind or if it's really cold. I'm in Melbourne and this does the trick- similar temps to nz at the moment too.
Have a great holiday!

A beanie is important as a baby loses a lot of heat from an uncovered head. Just lots of layers

I use pram sleeping bags that can zip apart (so it can be a pram liner or a sleeping bag), with a footmuff as well if it is raining. It gets very cold where we are, I tend to use double onesies too (a longleeve/long leg cotton zip up one underneath a terry longsleeve long leg one), plus a zip up hoodie. I find that is enough layers to adjust throughout a cold day outdoors. I would only use a blanket if I was holding bubs outside of the pram for extended periods of time, as she would be likely to chuck it out of the pram anyway!

Is a foot muff a must have or can I get away with a blanket?

I found the plastic rain covers were always good cause it protected them from the elements, and it didn't matter if they threw off blankets etc. cause they all stayed contained within the pram.
